BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 A.M.) – The Israeli Air Force bombed Syria’s Aleppo Governorate after passing through two neighboring Arab countries, MilitaryArms.Ru reported on April 1st, citing the Israeli Debka publication.
According to the report, the Israeli F-35 stealth fighters entered eastern Syria from western Iraq on the night of March 27th.
Prior to entering Iraqi airspace, the Israeli F-35s allegedly traveled from their home base to neighboring Jordan, the Debka report stated.
Once the Israeli Air Force reached the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian air defense units allegedly fired its newly acquired S-300 missiles towards the enemy aircraft.
However, the Debka report claims that the Syrian air defense units were unable to hit the Israeli F-35s during the bombing of Aleppo on the evening of March 27th.
Despite these claims, a source from the Syrian military told Al-Masdar shortly after the attack that their forces attempted to intercept the enemy projectiles using their S-200 system.
The source did, however, make the same claim about the Israeli Air Force using the F-35 during the attack on Aleppo city and its surroundings.
Due to the F-35’s ability to fly at a high altitude, the Israeli warplane was able to evade detection by the Syrian air defense units.
This attack was similar to the Israeli Air Force’s bombardment of the Iranian military base in the southern Aleppo town of Al-Safira last year; they also used an F-35 to strike this installation.
